  • Gorgeous inside and out


    I wanted to find a place that was in-between our children so everyone could be together for Christmas. The pictures did not do it justice. The home is simply perfect. The kitchen had all the appliances you need including a crockpot. Bathrooms for all the rooms. And the swing on the back porch was so nice to sit in and watch the water. They even decorated it for Christmas for us. The owners were amazing and had everything ready for you. It was the best relaxing Christmas we've had. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!

  • Happy November stay.


    We loved our time here. Wonderful setting. (Just a mention...stairs involved for daily access to water but a ramp available to access house from driveway.) Once inside the house was clean, the beds were super comfy, lots of space for everyone and the kitchen was central and nicely updated. Great deck with beautiful view out to the lake. The new boardwalk runs a good distance and will tempt you away from the house, maybe to fish. Owners care about their rental and are avail. We happily recommend this property.
